Shepherds United, Academy and Spirit 08 pull off wins

Shepherds United, Academy and Spirit 08 record wins in thy opening day of the Port Vila Football 2010/2011 Season over the weekend.

Shepherds whom are new comers in the premier division opened the day's matches with a deserved 2-1 win over Tupuji Imere FC.

Shepherds got one early into the game thanks to an Albert Api strike earlier in the first half.

Tupuji's equalizer came right after the spell break with Ando cracking in a superb 40 meter free kicking to send the Tupuji fans celebrating in the stands.

But it was Shepherds whom made the most of their chances against a now 10 man Tupuji side who had defender Tintin sent off late into the second half and saw Shepherds pulling one up to seal a much deserved 2-1 victory over Tupuji.

Second game of the day saw the young Academy FC side coming away with a 2-0 win over new comers Ifira Blackbirds FC.

It was a double strike in each half from promising striker Jean Kaltak that sealed the victory for Academy.

Academy dominated much of the game with their brilliant ball controls, passing and superior fitness form displayed against a struggling Ifira side that were not in form compared to their side that got a surprise 2-1 win over O-League reps Amical FC.

Last match of the day saw Spirit 08 FC scraping a 2-1 win over a now revamped Yatel FC side.

It was Spirit that got one in early into the game only to be leveled by a brilliant Yatel goal just before tha half time.

But in the end Spirit got back into the game late into the second half to seal a win.
